RE: Battery drain over winter

I keep my hunting rigs up near Fairbanks, Alaska. The rigs are used for most of the month of Sept to go moose hunting. They're then parked where there is no electricity. Most of the time they won't be started again until July or Aug of the next year when I pull maintenance on the rigs. While I don't disconnect the batteries (each rig has multiple batteries due to the electric winches) I do have nice Blue Seas battery disconnects on them within 2 ft of the batteries. On the average, my batteries last 7 years. Temps will hit -50F during the winter and my winters last longer than most people's winters are. It's still below freezing most nights. Bill

RE: Star Link

You need a good clear camping / parking spot that has good clear opening in the direction the dish needs to be pointed. If you're in a well treed parking spot, most likely you won't get a connection. The dish does not get pointed straight up. On the east coast I don't think you're going to find good spots. The further west, due to less large trees, the better you'll probably do. I have SL in Anchorage, AK and am not overly enthused with it. They launched over 200 sats for this area in Jan and Feb, but it takes 6 months to get them tested and in the right orbit so about July I'm hoping things will improve. ill

RE: Typical price for Class A tire mounting and balance

When I've had to change my tires on the DP, I've waited until I was in a state that didn't have a sales tax. It will save you several hundred dollars. Bill If your primary residence is in a state that DOES have sales tax. Then you just admitted to tax fraud... . You are incorrect. Period. But then, I also do live in Alaska with no sales tax, but that doesn't matter. Bill

RE: Just curious

Yes, all of the time. Why would someone waste money on bottled water? I have a three filter set-up to include a carbon filter, so the taste is very good. Bill

RE: I Bought A Travel Trailer I Had Never Seen (in person)

I flew from Alaska to Colorado to buy our DP sight unseen. I had over 100 pictures of various things I wanted to see. I drove from Alaska to Idaho to pick up a Nash TT, again with a lot of pictures. You need to know something about what you're buying, get a lot of pictures and have a lot of talks with the seller. It's certainly doable. Bill

RE: Cummins Onan Generator Fuel Filter 149-2513

Ebay sells a lot of OEM parts. Find one that looks OEM and text the seller. I get a lot of my Onan and Cat filters off of Ebay. Bill

RE: SeeLevel tank monitor system

I had SeeLevel gages installed on my DP and they weren't a bit better than the OEM gages. They were a waste of money. Bill

RE: Armada to Pull 33' Lightweight TT

One of the items I find interesting when a mfg states a towing capacity, is they never mention whether their rating is good for a trip to a camp ground 100 miles away on flat ground, or going across the US crossing the Continental Divide on very long trips over several months. The Armada will probably do fine to a campground a 100 miles away, but it doesn't have the transmission, rearend or brakes for longhaul traveling. Bill

RE: Big Bend National Park - RV PARKS

You're from Texas so maybe the heat won't bother you. When we were there they didn't have electric, it was run your generator which was fine, but when we'd get back to the MH in the late evening, it would be hot and you couldn't get it cooled off before quiet time so we had to try and sleep in a very hot MH each night. We left early Bukk

RE: In bed fuel transfer tank question

Looking to ad a 35-75 gallon in bed fuel transfer tank.(not an auxiliary/plumbed in) What type should I get, aluminum, steel or poly? Aluminum scares be because it is so thin, and steel will rust. I bought my steel tank to go in a new 1983 truck. The tank is now on it's third truck and doing fine. Next year will be 40 years on the tank. Bill

RE: Low coolant Question

Without a picture, I assume it's the little panel that gives you various warnings like low or high alternator output, low oil pressure or a low coolant level. Have you gone around back and checked the coolant level in the overflow tank. You're probably low even though you aren't overheating - yet. Bill

RE: Foggy windows help please

We had a glass shop in Washington build us all new windows to replace the existing ones - but you're based in Florida............ Since they were building the frames also, we had them modify the bedroom escape window and the driver's side window. Also installed tinted glass to keep heat out. AND, they guaranteed the windows to never fog for as long we owned the MH or they'd replace them free. It's been about 6 years so far. Bill2005 Fleetwood Excursion 39S
